Marketing Highlights

Out September 29th on Wharf Cat, HONEY'S sophomore long player New Moody Judy builds on their debut's “hard edged slice of rock noise” ( – Byron Coley) to create an album full of the pummel and swing, rave-ups and comedowns, and ferocious riffs and rhythms previously known only to those who have witnessed the power-trio's live set. Equal parts concision and brute heaviness, this is the sound of perfect rock and roll music - music that's always on the edge of spinning out of control.

From the first single, “the pugnacious ‘Dream Come Now’ a barnstormer every bit as fiery as the album artwork” ( – Noisey), to the tight jam giving way to a thrilling cascade of riffs that fuel the rush of ‘Hungry,’ HONEY give everything to the music on this release to deliver their most sonically diverse effort to date. As thematically cerebral as it is musically visceral, New Moody Judy is one of the rare albums that offers as much brain fodder for the lit majors as it does instant gratification for the guitar-heads.

** Live album stream confirmed with Hype Machine beginning 9/25 ** ** Interview in Impose Magazine confirmed week of 9/29 **

Noisey: "the best pummeling backbeats the Stooges never wrote"

Ad Hoc: "It takes a real struggle not to be pulled into the orbit of Brooklyn trio HONEY’s heavy, haunting psych rock."

Brooklyn Vegan: "The trio’s pedal-to-the-metal pursuit of early ’70s Detroit style punk/rock n’ roll remains unabated, as can be heard on ripper 'Dream Come Now.'"

Pitchfork: "echo-drenched vocal tics and subliminal synth oscillations"

The Fader: "filled with dark, swirling riffs that threaten to suck you in"

Subbacultcha: "the Brooklyn punk sound at its finest"

Paper: "the group blends distortion-laden guitar licks and room-shaking percussion for a sound that's simultaneously heavy and completely danceable"

All Music: "the sheer energy of the band's performances makes them more than homages"

Bio

Before they were members of the same band, Cory Feierman (bass, vocals) and Dan Wise (guitar, vocals) knew one another from Brooklyn’s Academy Records, where Cory worked as a buyer and Dan was a regular customer. One day Dan mentioned he was looking for a copy of The Gun Club’s Death Party EP, which happened to be the next record in the stack of recent arrivals that Cory was pricing. The coincidence ultimately led them to realize that they had more in common than just an appreciation for punk records, and they began playing together not long afterwards. At the time, Dan was a member of The Psychic Ills, and shared the occasional bill with Will Schmeichen (drums), who was then part of Amen Dunes. Eventually it came to light that Dan needed a drummer for his new band and that Will was interested in joining a more rock and roll focused project. Soon after Honey was born.

Since then, the band has shared the stage with the likes of Dead Moon, J. Mascis, Sheer Mag, The Men, Destruction Unit, and more and have become a household name for everyone fiending for the raw authenticity that, thankfully, can still be found in NYC at the intersection of punk and rock and roll.

2015’s Love Is Hard, in the words of Byron Coley, was “a great, hard-edged slice of rock noise” that caught the ears of Pitchfork, Noisey, and Impose, among others. This fall’s New Moody Judy picks up where the band left off with their debut and layers on ferocious riffs and rhythms previously known only to those who have witnessed the power-trio’s live set.
